Program Overview

Program Description:
Every child deserves a fair start in life, but South Africa’s township children are at an immediate disadvantage due to factors beyond their control. 11.5million of the country's 19 million children live in poverty. They face unique challenges and for many such children, daily life revolves around basic survival. Little Lambs is a PreSchool and Daycare Centre in Cape Town which caters to the poor of the community. The centre operates 5 days per week with a full-time Principal and 15 teachers and provides a safe learning space for 250 children aged between 10 months to 6 years. The children are cared for in a loving environment, are taught values and simple life skills and are prepared for formal schooling. Each class has a teacher and between 25 and 35 children.

Costs & Application: This position is unpaid and you will have to carry the costs for expenses such as flight, accommodation and meals during your stay.
